IRS White House Visits "I think the administration needs to explain this"

Megan McArdle writes:

"Last week, conservatives were saying that former IRS head Douglas Shulman had been to the White House 118 times, while his predecessor had visited the Bush era White House only once. I didn't write about it because I idly assumed that this reflected some underlying change in administration management style or legislative priorities; perhaps, for example, he'd been there talking about Obamacare implementation and changes in tax enforcement.

But the Daily Caller has now compiled a list of White House visits by various administration officials, and Shulman sure does seem to visit a lot more than other folks...I think the administration needs to explain this."

The simplest explanation is that President Obama thinks the IRS is the most important department of government.
